I write short short stories -- tightly written and to the point -- revolving around real, well developed, ordinary characters thrust into extraordinary situations. Usually in the Science Fiction genre.


"Writing a book is a horrible, exhausting struggle, like a long bout of some painful illness. One would never undertake such a thing if one were not driven on by some demon whom one can neither resist nor understand. For all one knows that demon is simply the same instinct that makes a baby squall for attention. And yet it is also true that one can write nothing readable unless one constantly struggles to efface one's own personality."

-- George Orwell
